A teleclass is a telephone call that allows many callers to be on the same line at once. It's like a conference call, but only uses basic telephone connections.
To participate, a caller is given a 10 digit phone number to call at a specific time. Once the connection is made, the caller must enter an access code to enter the class.
Each caller has certain controls he can use to mute himself or participate live on the call.
If the leader of the teleclass decides to, the call can be recorded for later playback. If there is a playback, either the call in number or the access code may be different.
Call instructions and playback instructions are provided to participants prior to the calls.
